#' @description
#' Rasterize TRMM 3B42 .bin or .HDF files.
#'
#' @param x TRMM 3B42 file(s) as \code{character}. Currently supported filetypes
#' are .bin .HDF, and .nc4. Note that \code{\link{rasterizeTRMMbin}} takes one
#' file only.
#' @param ... Additional arguments passed to \code{\link{rasterizeTRMMbin}} or
#' \code{\link{rasterizeTRMMhdf}}.
#'
#' @return
#' \itemize{
#' \item{\strong{.bin files}: A single \code{RasterLayer} object.}
#' \item{\strong{.HDF files}: A \code{list} of \code{Raster*} objects.}
